In a confusing world of much discouraging news I experienced a positive example of the real world too often not heard from: the honesty of our community. Soon after arriving home from a walk near the Burton neighborhood I received a phone call: a gentleman found my wallet and wondered how to get it to me! No big amount of money in it, but my life would have been very complicated for a few weeks if I had to replace/protect the important cards it held. So a big “thank you” to the man who did the right thing. I’d like to think he is the normal example of integrity, not an exception. We need to hear more examples of such right conduct. It would be contagious!
